Off home patch–Galway , Ireland

Just back from a great, and mostly sunny week in Galway and Co Clare—sun shone and Guinness flowed:)


Fantastic scenery. wildflowesr and birds around Galway and especially The Burren. The limestone pavement was absolutely fantastic, a one off in the world amazing and a `must do` place.

Birds included wheatears, making great use of the amazing drystone walls habitats, `comic` terns, turnstones, big flocks linnets, turnstones and the amazing sight of nearly 200 mute swans feeding on seagrass @ Camus Bay a shallow sea loch

L’dod Lake-lull before the storm!!!

I imagine the birds won’t enjoy the firework display , but hopefully they’ll survive. The GC grebes are growing rapidly , but still partially dependent-here they exchange a small Perch. Not much else there.DSC_2704_filteredDSC_2799_filteredDSC_2806_filtered
